But so far the 3 holes are good and seem to work well in various conditions, med to med-high traction.
Did you drill your own? I used my blank set and couldnt get my hands on any more to try other hole variations.

That set up sheet surely does. Im trying to find the one that i printed off cause it surely does not say no bladders, I believe all it says is 1mm limiter front and none in the rear.

No. I drilled my own for the 2 hole pistons and didn't have any more. And even now that I have them, I really would prefer not to drill them again because I hated doing it by hand last time.

Anyway, I took the 4 x 1.3 and plugged up a hole. Since even Torrance said that was a way to do it, I thought I would give it a try. I plugged the hole with a tooth pick, glued it in, and dremeled it pretty much flush to the piston. I recently changed shock caps so I got a chance to check on them and the hole is still plugged.

I'm sending out the arm inserts to see if DiggityDesigns can make these. It's my goal to get these offered as sets of front or rear, so we don't need purchase all 4... Not sure the pricing but I'll keep you updated.

Is most everyone running the Black rear sway? I am running silver on a bumpy high bite track. This is on my list of things to try this weekend. Also, what is the difference with the Dot suspension pieces for kick/squat? The setup sheets list 2x ways to get 11deg kick? Is one LRC vs HRC?

The more dots, the lower the Roll Center becomes.
